Maine Maritime Museum and the Saltwater Celtic Music Festival Present
MMM in collaboration with the Saltwater Celtic Music Festival presents Aiofe Clancy in concert.Aoife Clancy (pronounced "Eefa" brings a refreshing new voice to folk music, one that ranges from traditional Irish songs to ballads and contemporary folk. Aoife comes from the small town of Carrick-on-Suir, in Co Tipperary, Ireland, where her musical career began at an early age. Her father Bobby Clancy of the legendary Clancy Brothers, placed a guitar in her hands at age ten, and by age fourteen was playing with her father in nearby pubs.
Now with seven recordings under her belt in the last decade, Aoife has clearly establisthed herself as one of the Divas of Irish and contemporary Folk Music. She has recorded two solo projects "Its about Time" and "Soldiers and Dreams" on Rego Records. On her debut CD " It's About Time" Aoife presents some traditional favorites, such as "Factory Girl" and "Mrs. Mcgrath," but she also presents a sassy rendition of Leon Russelson's "Don't Get Married Girls".
As one review remarked, "She has a breadth of styles that make her concerts fascinating. Her singin would melt packed ice with it's warmth and richness"- Mike Jackson, Canberra Times.
